What are you all doing for the long Labor Day weekend? Hopefully traveling to a lake with family and friends to soak up the last few days of summer.
And to stuff your faces with #allthefood . . . obviously.
While we won’t be traveling anywhere this year – we’re due with our first baby September 15th, so she could literally come at any minute and yes we’re equal parts excited and terrified 😉 – we WILL, however, be joining you in stuffing our faces.
